of religious beliefs. so why would you choose scientology, perhaps the most stigmatized religion in this country? >> what do you think it does for people? that's the thing i sort of can't get to the bottom of. what does it give people? >> at the beginning level, when you go in and get auditing, which is their form of therapy, a lot of people feel like they are helped. in fact, that's what draws people in. they ask, what is ruining your life? what is your ruin? and if you say, well, it's my relationship or my profession or something, they say we have something that can help you. and sometimes that's true. >> and is recruiting celebrities, going -- they have this celebrity center in hollywood. was that a conscious effort by the church, and is that for pr reasons? >> oh, absolutely. these are product endorsements. but the church of scientology was created in los angeles. the celebrity center in hollywood, all of it with the design to take over the entertainment industry. you know, there were people that they were actively recruiting. they were always looking for that exemplary figur
. and they cling to guns or religion. >> rowland, should the democrats heed president clinton's advice on the gun issue? >> i think what the key for democrats to do is, again, to be sensible when it comes to guns. you have seen democrats who are strong nra supporters say, we should do something. and that's what the real key here is. the problem is when it becomes, you either do something, and the opposition says, no, you do nothing. there has to be some kind of middle ground. so what some democrats are saying is, look, we've got to be able to appeal to them. but it's not just folks in the south also, erin. you have democrats in minnesota, wisconsin, maine, new york that have all gotten "a" ratings from the nra. >> fair point. >> so it's a very delicate issue here. i just can't believe it has to be one or the other. you can do something. >> thanks to both. >>> still to come, a new super bacteria has been discovered and one compares to it a terrorist attack. dr. oz is outfront. >>> and the naacp join the fight against the soda ban. >>> and later, mark zuckerberg hosts a political fund-raiser for a
. >> and this union between religion and the state that we know has, you know, for a long time, church and state combined to keep -- to make contraceptives obscene. how do you explain this religious determinism on the part of so many opponents of abortion? >> well, there's sort of two ways of looking at it. i mean, many people don't know that abortion became criminalized in the united states not as a result of really a religious movement, but as part of the effort of white male doctors to professionalize, to gain control over medicine from midwives and herbalists. and also in response to a very similar moment in history that we're in now. it was a point in which there was a great deal of immigration, where native white birth rates were falling, and there was the first beginning of the suffrage and feminist movement, arguing that women shouldn't have to, that women should have a say in whether they have intercourse with their husbands. and the people who were asking the legislature to criminalize abortion were arguing that that had to be done to keep women in their place, to ensure that native wh

[ laughter ] >> but i think president obama is savoring looking back at the crowd, that is human to me. he is a human being like all of us. >> jennifer: so this was also a -- these inaugural speeches some have been very brief, some very been very long. this was was 18 minutes. was it about the right length? >> i think so. jerry nabb the congressman from new york looks like he is falling asleep over and over. >> jennifer: yeah, we have his youngest d
take out representatives of the 5 major religions and do the same thing and we model in front of high school and middle school students how the faiths can sit down like we are sitting here today and have conversations about our commonalities but about our differences as well. many of the comments we get from students is, wow, you guys can sit up there and talk because most of the pictures our students see are the ones that have been playing across our screens the last 2 or 3 days. we hope by challenging that we can prevent bullying and harassment we've been seeing here today. >> thank you, amina stacy is manager of communications for the los angeles giants. >> if you think about what our mission is, you probably think our mission is to win the world series every year, which hopefully this year we're on the right track, but actually our mission statement, we just went through an exercise but our mission statement has always been to enrich the community through innovation. and it's very, i am very proud of the fact that the giants have been able to take that mission and bring it into

's going to put together among clergy of all types and sex and religion in addition the united states to support this. this is an uphill climb. it is a different bill than i introduced. we go from two physical characteristics in the definition of an assault weapon to one. we ban 158 specific guns by make and model. we grandfather 2200 weapons by make and model that are rifles, shotguns pistols used for recreation defense hunting. we ban clips drums or strips of more than 10 bullets. prohibit their manufacture their sale, their transfer. we are different from the new york state law. we do not require registration of grandfathered weapons. and in that regard we are also different from the california law. in a sense it's a little more moderate in that regard because the gun organizations regard registration as "the first step to confiscation." >> schieffer: when somebody sells one of these guns they may have now or gives it to someone else? >> we rerequire a full background check to the transferee the person to whom the gun is transferred. >> schieffer: do you think the n.r.a. is now or
about in marriage law and a lawsuit in another state, we hear this issue about religion. i may be overreacting a little bit, and if so, thank you for calling in. host: ron has this tweet. let me follow up on the point that many religions still don't identify same-sex marriage as a marriage. guest: many don't, and yet, many do. if you read the papers and follow the news, many people in states that do not legally recognized marriage, many churches perform ceremonies and go through ceremonies in their faith communities. a broad range of faith. it is wrong to think that religion is in one place on this. religion is all over the map on this. even within religions, there are enormous debates within a variety of sects of how to deal with same-sex couples, gay or lesbian clergy. this is a debate that is going to be going on for quite awhile but i think that the movement of history is on the side i am one. host: let me go back to one of the earlier caller is discussing adoption and the restrictions put in place. of course we know what has happened in russia, where they say no to various
, for example, on a base and there are multiple religions who want to use that chapel or sacred space then there should be no permanent religious symbol on the extearer or interor because it's used by others. and i would say not because i would like everyone to have lots of different views and-- but no, it's to protect the constitution, which is the government should not establish one religion over another, in this case, i think it's a good thing. if there are many different religious beliefs represented they should not establish one over the other. >> ainsley: what building is this? isn't it a chapel? >> they could use that sacred space for different groups. if you have a cross outside of the chapel used by many different religious groups, including jewish and muslim then you're saying this is just for christians. >> is the answer not to remove the cross, to have the inclusion of all religious symbols there, how difficult would that be. >> the policy is that there's no permanent symbols and then once the religious service is going on, put up crosses, crucifixes, whatever religious sy
sense is that regardless of culture, race religion try some commonality. these essential human truth compassion and hope some moral precepts are universal. just go and somebody is another variation he said in the speech that made famous in the 2004 keynote address at the democratic national convention in boston, where he said there's a red states blue states, but the united states. he presented himself as the personification of that notion. his presidency has been a rude awakening in terms of how far you can take that. so he has been dealing with that. the promise and frustrations of that idea ever sense. as i'm sure we'll both be experiencing the telephone calls, for the show. >> host: your book ends in 1989, "barack obama: the story." he said there's another volume coming? >> guest: added y2k committed to 40 years of robert caro, so assertive cat that on the down low, but i had every intention and i've done a lot of reporting that the later years, which influences the book even though they're not in it. and i don't want to do a quickie. i tried a rate for history documents coming o
